Original recipe yields 4 servings



  1. Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a rolling boil; stir in the egg noodles and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the chopped onion, green pepper, garlic, and parsley. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the crawfish tails and Cajun seasoning; simmer 5 minutes longer.
  3. Pour in the heavy cream, mushrooms, and 1/2 cup of Cheddar cheese; stir until the cheese has melted. Toss the pasta with the crawfish sauce and green onions; sprinkle with the remaining Cheddar cheese.

This was wonderful! I did halve the butter (and supplemented a little olive oil instead) and used fat free half & half. Topped with some panko--it was so delicious. I've been looking for something new to make with crawfish tails, and this one is going into the rotation for sure. Thanks!



This was great!! I didn't have the exact seasonings listed so I added my own for taste and it turned out Great. I left everything else the same just added more heavy pint since sauce thickens. I will use this recipe again.



Easy to make and quick. I followed recipe exactly as written, but found it to be too salty, wish I had added the Tony's gradually (not sure what I was thinking), we like spicey so that wasn't a problem, just to salty. Worth trying the recipe, just pay attention to the salty factor.
